General Info

Our week-long STEM & Buds summer camps are open to all elementary and middle school students. We focus on personalized growth at the intersection of science and civics through individualized project creation, small-group interdisciplinary STEM challenges, one-on-one peer mentorship, and direct discussions with industry leaders---all the while building a lasting, supportive community.
